    Hi everyone! I have a Leupold Vari X III 4.5x14 with a 1" tube, I have been told that at long ranges I will run out of adjustment, My question is can I use a mount with 20 or 15 moa added to help with this problem? Or do I need to purchase a new scope?

    Thanks!

    Yes

    Or you could use the Burris rings with the offset inserts.

    I have that exact scope on a Sendero and first mounted it with standard mounts. I didn't run out of adjustment at 1K, but was very close. I ordered a Seekins Precision 20MOA base to get the adjustments at long range back towards the middle of the range of adjustment.
